MAJOR UPDATE - Customization Explorer, Selfie Maker, Trading Cards & Soundtrack

Hello runners.

Today we are launching 4 major updates to Dino Run DX:

1) Customization Explorer : finally, a way to choose hats and colors without clicking 100 times. Set favorites, go back in your recent history, view by collections, and more... carpel tunnel BE GONE! You can access this on the title screen in the main options (customize & share).

2) Selfie Maker: previously called the avatar exporter. Make portraits of your favorite customizations and save them to your hard drive - share with friends, post to social media & make us famous! :) You can access this from the camera icon in the customization explorer.

3) Trading Cards: At long last! Some extremely juicy new cards, backgrounds + avatars await you.

4) Soundtrack: Now available for a stupidly low price! Get all your favorite dino tunes, including the halloween ones of course.

Keep on runnin...

Steam Multiplayer Has Launched, No Sign-Up Required

Hello runners,

We know people have been asking about this for a while, sorry it took so long... you can now enter Multiplayer with your Steam account, no sign-up required. Make sure you are updated to the most recent version (1.33) to use it.

For XGEN account users, you now have the choice to auto-login with the last username and password you used. Another feature that's been asked for quite often.

IMPORTANT - if you already use an XGEN account, don't use the steam auto-login - just log in the same way you always did before.

See you in the races!

-Miles @ Pixeljam

About This Game

DINO RUN DX is an ongoing evolution of the classic prehistoric multiplayer racing game. Control your iconic raptor through an endless assortment of procedurally generated landscapes and outrun the ever-approaching WALL OF DOOM. Will you end up one of the millions of doomsday casualties, or will you ESCAPE EXTINCTION?

-A unique experience every time you play... no two levels are ever the same.
-3 major single player gameplay modes: CHALLENGE, PLANET D and SPEEDRUN (currently 24 speedruns with more coming soon).
-Realtime multiplayer with chat, matchmaking and more unique levels to race in. Climb the ranks and show your dominance!
-Choose from a staggering number of hat and color combinations to hone your look... unlock even more hats by completing game milestones.
-FREERUN MODE: turn off the doom, chat with other players during actual gameplay, spawn boulders and npc dinos, roleplay.... do what you want!

How is DX different than previous versions of the game?
If you've only played the web version from years ago, you'll find DX is a dramatic improvement with more levels, hats and gameplay options. If you've played Dino Run SE, the major differences right now are completely redone backgrounds and an extra layer of polish, true fullscreen mode, controller support, steamworks integration, improved multiplayer security, and a few more hats and colors to choose from. We are also currently working on even more improvements to the game and will continue to roll out new features as long as there is interest and support. This is our pledge to you! More info on upcoming features can be found at http://www.pixeljam.com/dinorun.

Fun Facts:
-The original web version has been played over 100 million times (source: Mochibot)
-Pixeljam, the creators of Dino Run, have made over 20 games since 2006.
-Dino Run helped pioneer the "runner" genre of games, before it was popularized on mobile and started to truly suck.
-Dinosaurs did not actually wear hats, but there are tiny traces of them in the plastic tightening straps on all baseball caps.

I remember playing this game on a browser when I was in elementary school, (sometimes when I was supposed to be doing homework, shhhh) fun times. I'm glad I found it again on Steam. It's kind of silly but that is one of its charms in my opinion.

I started playing this game from a young age I can't even remember and I have always gone back to it, over the years I have seen it improve massively and I'm proud to say that I love this game, it's extremely joyful and entertaining for me and for many others. There are many things I love about this game, but something that is worth a mention is the hugely addictive multiplayer. I have always found the community, even it's changed as I have played, a delight to talk to and play with. I massively recommend this game to honestly anyone. Please pick it up. I beg you!

I've known this game since I was 10 years old and I'm still playing it now even though I'm 18. Really the game that defined the running genre.

iirc this is the game that replaces "f*** you" in chat with "Lets Cuddle"

Its pretty simple, but very well made. You do everything dinosaurs do, including: running, eating and becoming extinct. Its great.

Devs sent keys to everyone who bought the game. I think I actually got it on a free day many many years ago and they sent me a key anyway. They are the real heros.

Also devs if you're listening, hit us up with some splitscreen and controller support. That would be great.

here is some game play of both modes

Game type- 2d side scroller
* The end is nigh and as a small rapter you do the only thing you know how to, run!
* You start by picking your color and a spiffy hat, then it's off to run, duck, & jump for your life.
* The sky is falling so run, though other dino's, falling debris, lava, run, run RUN!!
* Don't forget to prey on the weak and grab any lesser lizards, birds, worms & eggs.
* You can also ride some of the bigger bipedal lizards or get carried by pterodactyls.
* Eggs will let you increase your states and the bones will let you buy unlocks.
* You win by finding a safe haven from the falling sky.

Its a really cute game and good for relaxing stupid fun.

First off, I love dino run. With it coming out in around 2008, I have played this game for the longest time as a kid, but when i saw that they made a new version of it, i just had to get. This game is a lot more enjoyable than most indie games and doesn't get stale after a couple hours like games like timberman and crossy road. I totally recommend this game and i still enjoy as much, if not more than i did as a kid :D

Great Game!
This game has colorful graphics, awesome style options, multiplayer and more awesome things! I love to customize my own dino. Customizing your own dino can get VERY Complex, you have a Variety Of options. Theres Even a Minecraft and Fnaf Head You Can Wear! if you havent played this game yet i reccomend going here to play the free version first to give you a idea of what its like, http://www.miniclip.com/games/dino-run/en/ Keep in mind thats the FREE version and it doesnt have as many things as the STEAM VERSION. so it may seem like, Hey free game online why not but the Steam Version is better trust me.
Also dont think multiplayer is a HUGE AWESOME THING cus i have bad news, its not. The Multiplayer in this game isnt amazing but it is ok. it is very well setup the problem is that half the time no one is even on. This means you cant even race someone which can be very frustrating. But over all Great Game Good Cost!

You only need one hand to play Dino Run DX. Which means your other hand is free to drink as much as you want
